    Pros

    They were really good at training and development of their employees and they want you to have a good learning experience.

    Cons

    You're not likely to get hired back since all you get is access to the hire back pool. It's also government, so it's a little rigid.

    Advice to Management

    There should definitely be direct hireback since the whole bring em in boot em out thing with articling students seems kinda weird. Then again, training articling students for private firms might just be a public service.
